Austins
By Robert McLellan
 

In the 1960s I discovered "The Autocar" and "The Motor" magazines on a newsstand. Here in the U.S.A. issues were quite expensive and a quick read without being told, "Are you going to read it, or buy it?" was a challenge. If I could find some of the more exotic marques included there was a chance that I would part with some cash.

It always seemed that there were too many Austin, Morris and other less expensive cars discussed. So it was not until the 1970s, when I could afford subscriptions, that I read the magazines from front to back, including those articles and road tests on the Austin. Later I found old issues from the 1930s through the 1950s at swapmeets and Austin became of more interest.

I rarely see any of those interesting prewar or postwar Austins in America. Discovering Austin was worthy of my time and I hope you will find them interesting, too.

A small section of Austin brochures available:
